|Title:||Pure-state transformations and catalysis under operations that completely preserve positivity of partial transpose||Authors:||Matthews, W.
|Issue Date:||10-Jul-2008||Citation:||Matthews, W., Winter, A. (2008-07-10). Pure-state transformations and catalysis under operations that completely preserve positivity of partial transpose. Physical Review A - Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics 78 (1) : -. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevA.78.012317||Abstract:||Motivated by the desire to better understand the class of quantum operations on bipartite systems that completely preserve positivity of partial transpose (PPT operations) and its relation to the class LOCC (local operations and classical communication), we present some results on deterministic bipartite pure-state transformations by PPT operations. Restricting our attention to the case in which we start with a rank K maximally entangled state, we give a necessary condition for transforming it into a given pure state, which we show is also sufficient when K is 2 and the final state has Schmidt rank 3. We show that it is sufficient for all K and all final states provided a conjecture about a certain family of semidefinite programs is true. We also demonstrate that the phenomenon of catalysis can occur under PPT operations and that, unlike LOCC catalysis, a maximally entangled state can be a catalyst. Finally, we give a necessary and sufficient condition for the possibility of transforming a rank K maximally entangled state to an arbitrary pure state by PPT operations assisted by some maximally entangled catalyst. © 2008 The American Physical Society.||Source Title:||Physical Review A - Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/115249||ISSN:||10502947||DOI:||10.1103/PhysRevA.78.012317|
